Security Vulnerabilities fixed by Patch #2 and Character wipe

Right, so instead of implementing a "MMO framework" your plan was to "leave it as is" and slowly plug holes under the pretense/shield of "it's Alpha!". Yeah, nah. I loved the mod, I had great hopes for this game last year but I'm glad I didn't buy nor will I likely ever, especially if this "Alpha" is expected to last up to a year.

Trial & error isn't how you write server software. Cheers.

As we all know this was going to happen during the Alpha period, It doesn't really bother me, and I'm sure most people will agree.. I'd rather you fix the security issues and kill off everything I have then a hacker teleporting and exploiting the server.

Why are you complaining about this? They patched what they could find, people finding these exploits during an alpha...which is the stage where things are usually fixed during true development can only be a good thing, so they can be fixed everytime one pops up.

 

Fixing these security issues can only be a good thing.

Good job, I'll also take this moment to post videos of hacks for every other video game. It is important for you neckbeards to note that no game is free of hacks and all that was promised in DayZ standalone was no more nukes, ThunderDomes, Insta killing servers, and animal hacks.

Youtube videos of hacks of every other fps: http://youtu.be/i0r-bC2l6v0?t=41s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIzq0IttNZk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emGj4LtKNH0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KoMMeMwT88

If you want me to take you seriously, have the common decency not to mock me with your username.

 

It doesn't really matter if you take my words seriously, does it?

Server software is written by predicting the future by eating a lot of rotten kiwis of course. Rocket clearly doesn`t know what he`s doing despite creating DayZ and consistenly improving upon the formula.

Lost my over 10 hour old character who was pretty kitted... all good though. To be fair, hackers ruined the mod so much, so a complete wipe is really not that big of a deal. I just also wanted to thank you, Dean Hall, and your team for working so hard on making the mod everything we want it to be. I mean, the fact that we've had 2 updates in 2 days just makes me appreciate this even more. Also, may I remind everyone that when testing MMORPG alpha's, the companies wipe characters every week, so this is honestly not that bad.

      I would love to be able to tame a dog with meat, that then follows you around through the harsh landscape of Chernarus, and it could attack zombies for you or you could tell it to stay in a certain area, but you would have to keep feeding it, otherwise it will run away or die.
      Or you could tell it to stay at your tent to guard it from raiders and bandits.
      Just imagine sitting at your campfire ind the woods with your dog beside you :3 *-*
      Just an idea :)

      I had not played DayZ since December, so I decided to jump on once again to play and I played for a good 30 Minutes or so with loot and all of that. Then, while I was running, It kicked me from the game and said "You were kicked off the game. (BattlEye: Global Ban #202602)"
      I do have full proof as I was recording at the time from start to finish I can post the raw file if needed.  Is there a way I can contact anybody to lift this ban?
      Did it detect some other process on my computer? The only other process I had running was Dxtory. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

      I know this has been discussed already.
      But it's of such great importance, and almost like game breaking if this is not implemented, i thought to make a poll for it.
       
      So please, you daring and brave adventurers, give your opinion about the Bananas!
